I am an anthropologist with an interest in health, illness, and death, primarily in the UK. My research ethnographically explores end-of-life care policy in England, and how it is translated into practice as well as the experiences of those living with chronic and/or terminal illness.

Outside of the university I am the Membership Secretary of the Association for the Study of Death and Society and a previous co-convenor of the British Sociological Association Study Group for the Social Aspects of Death, Dying and Bereavement.
